Promote health through life

The health promotion perspective means promoting, lifting up, making visible and giving room for good health, regardless of whether the person is without illness or not.

Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. This health promotion approach, where health is more than the absence of illness, focuses on health-promoting factors.

Promoting health throughout the life course is based on people's healthy start to life and then their own ability as well as supportive efforts to maintain good health throughout their life.

Research shows that health and learning are strongly intertwined, education as completed high school studies, is one of the most important protective factors for promoting health and good living conditions. The research that is conducted involves senior researchers as well as doctoral students and students at the advanced level.
